Randy returns from the Jersey Shore (not that one) with tales of his re-Marstered life on, uh, Mars. D.J. goes into way too much detail over the new Steam version of Groove Coaster. Also, tips for enjoying Monster Hunter World‘s summer festival.
Paul starts traveling down the long and mysterious Octopath. D.J. makes things more difficult than necessary in Homesick. Also, an extreme throwback to BBS RPGs, and unexpected fun climbing a tower.
Beat the summer heat with some cool, red-hot game music, or something! We share our favorite Sega hits, favorite tropical Animal Crossing jams, and favorite… Antonio Vivaldi?
We’re joining in The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, escaping the Commies in Black The Fall, and learning all about copyright law in the Westworld mobile game. And wait, is that Gravity Rush 2?
Paul finally caves to peer pressure and tries Fortnite. D.J. leaves the arcade long enough to go treasure hunting in Gravity Rush 2. Randy does an in-depth analysis of the various Captains Toad. Also, Hollow Knight.
Randy tries Yoku’s Island Express, the latest in the crowded dung beetle/fruit-trading/pinball adventure genre. D.J. goes on a leisurely cruise in Quarantine Circular. And, of course, Yakuza.
It’s E3 week and we can’t wait to hear all about the new Animal Crossing game!
Randy unveils his plan for Word Domination. D.J. navigates the treacherous staircases of Runner 3. Paul plays the same old same old. And someone, somewhere is excited for E3. Also: How realistic of a tennis game is Mario Tennis Aces?
What is Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon? A miserable pile of dated graphics and clunky controls. (Depending who you ask.) Also: Burly Men at Sea, the further adventures of wizards, and the first five prime numbers.
We brush off our demon negotiation skills in Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux, ask the hard questions about what it means to be a Wizard of Legend, and lament the lack of tea kettles in Yakuza 6. Starring Paul Sandhu as Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

We grab our cameras and try to piece together all the weird stuff going on in the prototype demo of SWERY’s The Good Life. Also: Tumblestone, several generations of Hidden My Game by Mom, and the latest Nintendo drama.
Randy divides his time between a fighter pilot career in Rogue Aces and being a bad influence on Kratos Jr. in God of War. Speaking of bad influences, D.J. gets tips from Yakuza 6 on what to do if he ever finds himself stuck with a baby in a strange city.
